4 Wheel Mobility Scooters Offer More Stability
The most common question we are usually asked is, "What is the difference between a 3 wheel mobility scooter and a four-wheel mobility scooter?" The answer is quite simple. Four-wheel mobility scooters will have greater stability when compared to its 3 wheel mobility scooter counterpart. However, the turning radius on the four-wheel mobility scooter will not be as sharp as the three-wheel. As you can see, the one that you choose will be dependent upon the intended use case of the mobility scooter. Therefore, if you know that making tight turns will not occur much, then a four-wheel mobility scooter might be the right choice for you. After all, no one ever wanted less stability!
The Different Types of 4 Wheel Mobility Scooters
4 wheeled mobility scooters come in many different shapes and sizes. For instance, you can get a folding four wheel mobility scooter. These types of 4 mobility scooters are fantastic if you intend on traveling on an airplane or do not have much room for storage. They will actually fold to give you more room. Because of the fact that they are easy to fold, you will quickly notice that they are lighter than other types of four-wheel mobility scooters. The only downside to this type of scooter would be the costs. Because some of these scooters fold automatically, the cost is more than a traditional 4 wheel traveling mobility scooter.
Another type is the travel 4 wheel mobility scooter which is meant for those who will intend on traveling. You might think, why would I choose a traveling mobility scooter when I can just get a folding one? Well, the costs are usually a bit less because less technology is involved. Travel scooters in the four-wheel configuration are extremely popular. They offer a great balance of cost, total weight, travel distance, speed, and more. Many times, the 4-wheel travel scooters can fit into the trunk of most cars. Rather than pressing a button or hitting a lever, you will need to disassemble the mobility scooter. So the process is a bit more hands-on. However, thousands upon thousands of people purchase these types of mobility scooters each year and absolutely love them.
4 wheeled full-size mobility scooters are the average size scooters. They are a bit larger than the travel types. You might think, "How can this be a benefit". It is quite simple. Those that intend on using the scooter for longer distances demand more comfortability. Consider this, when you need to keep weight to an absolute minimum you will use parts that are lighter weight rather than more comfortable. If weight is not an issue, it enables you to not only use different materials but also a different design. In addition to comfort, you can also expect more bells and whistles. Perhaps a full size 4 wheel mobility scooter will have suspension along with a larger frame. A bigger motor and bigger battery usually mean a superior travel range and faster top speed. For those that do not need a smaller mobility scooter, these are a fantastic alternative.
The last type of 4 wheel disability scooter would be heavy-duty. 4 wheel mobility scooters in this category are built with reinforced frames. They are ideal for those with higher than average weights. Weight limits on most scooters cap out at around 300lbs. Some more, some less. However, if you are 400 or more pounds you should consider a heavy-duty mobility scooter. Weight alone is also not the only factor. So is the terrain that you intend on using the mobility scooter on. For instance, if you will be going through the grass, gravel, or another terrain that demands more power a heavy duty 4 wheel mobility scooter would be the right choice. The suspension is also generally designed differently with the heavy-duty mobility scooters in 4 wheel configuration.
